Wonderful short stay at this excellent property. On entering you immediately see the care and attention given by the owners. House was spotless clean and very well equipped. Good sized rooms and great kitchen. The welcome pack was a great surprise. The hot tub was fab and warm, really relaxing. We plan to return one the current situation improves.

Not the prettiest house or location but we were looking for a weekend escape to hide from the world so for that it was perfect! Good access in to the centre. Exceptionally clean with everything you needed, apart from a bath but who needs that with the covered hot tub, which was by far the cleanest one we have ever experienced. Lovely little welcomeRead more gifts too :) We had a great weekend, thank you! Hide

The cottage had everything needed to have an amazing holiday. I loved that the owners left us holiday essentials and a bottle of prosecco. We could not fault it at all. The hot tub was spotless and checked everyday. The owners left us alone for the duration of the holiday. Contact number was provided if we wanted to contact them. Shopping complex aRead morend cinema is only 5 minute drive down the road. The photos of the cottage do not do it justice it really is beautifully decorated and really homely. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
